The Picasso Clownfish Misbar is a color variation of the Percula Clownfish. The body color and general morphology of Picasso Clownfish are similar to the regular Percula Clownfish, but the stripe pattern is very different. Sea & Reef Aquaculture offers three different grades of Picasso clownfish namely Picasso clownfish, Premium Picasso clownfish and Picasso Misbar. Grading of Picasso clownfish is based on the amount and shape of the white markings. Picasso Clownfish Misbar has a greater degree of interrupted white markings and/or a missing tail stripe.

Temperament & Captive Care

The temperament and captive care requirements for Picasso Clownfish Misbar is very similar to that of the regular Percula Clownfish. It is very peaceful and hardy. They thrive in saltwater aquariums with or without an anemone present.

Feeding

Most clownfish are omnivorous feeders, meaning that they will consume a variety of different food types. In nature the diet of clownfish consists of crustaceans (such as copepods and amphipods), algae, polychaete worms, and leftovers from the anemone’s meal. Our captive bred fish are conditioned to eat a variety of aquarium diets including pellets, flake food, frozen Mysis shrimp, and frozen brine shrimp.

Aquarium host anemones

Like the Percula Clownfish the Picasso Clownfish Misbar will readily accept a wide variety of host anemones and many hobbyists keep the Picasso Misbar Clownfish with the popular and hardy Bubble Tip Anemone (Entacmaea quadricolor). As a reference the natural host anemones of the regular ocellaris clownfish are Magnificent Sea Anemone (Heteractis magnifica), Sebae Anemone (Heteractis crispa), and Giant Carpet Anemone (Stichodactyla gigantea).
